    My Dad is gonna have open heart surgery tomorrow. Full valve replacement and bypass. I'm terrified. Anyone who knows me in person knows how close me and my Dad are.

    This has been without question, the most difficult week of my life. I'm just a wreck. Being strong for the fam but just totally losing it when I'm alone.

    I know thoughts and prayers are the butt of a lot of jokes right now, but I'll take all the help I can get. I've never been so humbled and scared in my life.

    Sorry for not posting for a while. Hope all of you are well and happy and healthy.

    Praying for your dad, the surgeons and staff, you, your family, and all who know your dad. Hope everything goes smoothly and his recovery is swift.

    I will pray for your dad, his doctors, and for you.

    I realize this is so scary for you, but this is a fairly common surgery these days. I'm sure he's in great hands.

    If you need anything, please hit me up. Even if you just need an ear.

    Ok he's out, everything went good. Seeing him after was rough, but I know he's going to get better and feel better than he has in years. Thank you guys for the support I cant tell you how much I appreciate it.

    Glad to hear this! Your dad must be so thankful to have you right there supporting him during this tough stretch. Tell him we're all pulling for him over on our corner of the 'net.
